In same time, Microsoft announced that it would start to sell its plays via Xbox Live. The tests of Xbox Live begin at the end of June and ms Japan announces proudly that all the diponibles plays on Xbox will be compatible with Xbox Live within 5 years.
The press conference of Microsoft was led in turn by Mr. Hiroshi Oura, the general manager of ms Japan and Mr. Koide Masahiro head of the department network for Xbox. Mr. Oura presented the commercial part (cf 1st part) of Xbox Live while Mr. Masahiro, shouldered by a live demonstration of Phantasy Star Online of Mr. Naka, stuck has to show the system effectiveness Xbox Live and his technological advance incarn?y Xbox Communicator. Indeed, the characteristics of Xbox Communicator were largely proposed in this demonstration: deformation of the voice of the three players (Naka, Masahiro...), control of the character by vocal order (without touching with the pad to even deliver itself to the combat!!). The imposing one and little practises lever-keyboard of Final Fantasy XI on PS2 is returned to the oubliettes...
